    Is there any good news today?

    Good news is hard to find, but you have to start somewhere. The "admitted" infection rates in China seems to be slowing so there may be a chance of an economic pickup there.

    Fake news and its effect on the community

    The internet allows anyone and everyone to have their say. It also allows anyone to say almost anything they want with little fear of consequence. For a long time now it has become clear that a number of people are just making up stuff to trash people, organisations or ideas they want to...

    Use of reading market news if you day trade?

    I hear alot of day traders saying that they care little for what is happening on the market (i.e. they only care about the incremental blips and changes in their candlestick charts etc.) I'm starting to agree with them. What good is reading market news when you're trading on 1/10/15 minute...

    How do you feel about the financial news?

    I'm interested in how people feel about the financial information they consume. It'd be good if people could take the time to answer the quick poll and if they feel comfortable, share what news sources they use and what gaps exist.

    Investment/Finance/Economics breaking news

    Seems there is a 'breaking news' thread in the general chat section, but none here. Thoughts on what we would like to see in this thread welcome, I would prefer 'news' and not overt op-ed pieces (sometimes hard to separate the two). Here is post #1 to kick off, from the Financial Times this...
